This module begins to solve the business problem of the veterinarian by converting business data into a feed stored in the MashupHub catalog.
The business problem that the tutorial solves is:
A rural veterinarian has a client list with information about the client and the animal breed they own. The first feed mashup you will create outputs a list of clients sorted by last name who live in the state of Wyoming. Additionally, the vet needs to inform and advise her clientele of wildlife disease outbreaks occurring in nearby geographical locations.
The scenario listed above requires two mashups be created to solve each interest. The first step in creating these mashups is to create a data feed from the client data stored in an Excel spreadsheet.
The lessons covered in this module include creating feeds from two different data sources to illustrate the ability of MashupHub to ingest data from multiple data sources available in the business or enterprise.
After completing the lessons in this module you will understand the following:
- How to create a feed using an Excel spreadsheet as the data source
- How to create a feed using a relational database query as the data source
- Connection to the Internet
- Firefox Version 2.x, Internet Explorer 7.x or higher, or Safari 3.x browser (MacOS only)
- Logged in to MashupHub
